Leary Brick Factory Ruins

Let's take a closer look at the Leary Brickworks site and buildings.
This place is located in a somewhat hidden valley in southern Manitoba.
I have only the knowledge that I have gleaned from the internet so,I will add a link where you can read much more about this historic site, if you wish to.

Below is a closer view of the round kiln that was used. You can still see the word 'danger' above the door.

I was rather daring this time and walked right up to this old building and looked inside.

In another old building I spied these old gears, or whatever they are.They look pretty sturdy, even today.

I cannot elaborate on the old house, just to say that it has been around a long time and would have lots of stories to tell.


The huge brick chimney stands near the kiln, still standing tall all these years later.


Many an outing turns into a teaching event. Kai is using one of her Daddy's cameras and under his guidance is getting some great pictures.


Before we turned to leave, I had to try one last shot of the old chimney, with the sun behind it.

Something To Think About:
Thank you Lord for another amazing day full of so many blessings

The last picture of the chimney is wonderful. It looks like light is shooting out of the top. Oh, that poor old house. It is so sweet looking, too! You were brave to show us inside, a mystery now revealed!

The chimney and sun plus the old house are favorites today. But, honestly Ruth, they're all super.

You got some fascinating pictures at the site of this old factory. It looks as if it was a very productive time for the three of you.

We happened on some kilns similar to these north of us about 15 miles...there is a label for kilns on both blogs. We were going to go back and take a tour....the guys that were working said the family was always glad to show people and tell history. But we just never made it back till it closed down. I always feel we really missed something.

Interesting shots of the old kiln.
The old house doesn't look like it will be standing much longer.
Nice picture of your son and granddaughter. : )

Interesting and lovely shots - with a slight twist of the spooky.

Great shots. I love old structures. They have so much character and I can't even imagine how many stories to tell.
